Oklahoma State University
As an award winning land-grant public university, Oklahoma State University (OSU) looked to redesign the institution’s website in a way that would not only represent progression and growth, but would also clearly convey the resources for university business and student needs.
During the consultation period, OSU provided InterWorks with what was only a rotating image slideshow and a large list of required links. There was also no clear direction for user experience past the homepage. OSU had previously integrated Joomla as their primary CMS and through those requirements, InterWorks proposed an updated design that included dynamic news stories, videos, calendar, events and imperative links – all framed in a user-friendly interface.
InterWorks successfully created a custom-built design for Joomla 1.7 and worked closely with OSU’s Communications department to perfect the information architecture. InterWorks also provided a launch strategy and provided support to OSU’s Information Technology department to ensure a smooth transition.
